Purpose: To provide financial assistance to local education agencies
(LEAs) to meet the special educational needs of educationally deprived

children*

Eligible Recipients: Local education agencies receive grants under
Chapter 1. The size of the grant is primarily based on the number of
children in low-income families within the district. Chapter 1 also
makes payments to State education agencies (SEAs) for administration
and for State-operated programs, to the Insular Areas, and to the Secretary
of the Interior for the education of Indian children.

The Department is responsible for calculating State and then county allo-
cations, using a formula which takes into account, among other things,
the number of 5-17 year old children in low-income families and the
average State per~pupil expenditure. SEAs are then responsible for
making sub-county allocations to their LEAs. LEAs identify eligible
school attendance areas with high concentrations of children from low-
income families.

Eligible Beneficiaries:

Chapter 1   serves educationally deprived  children, in  public and private

schools, who reside in eligible attendance areas.
